The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.881 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 23%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, Vyolynce has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 116,260th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
